111: What is A Robot
... counter part of a computer that can handle various problems without any major hardware modifications. The only thing that changes when a robot is reassigned is its program of instructions. In modern robots, programmable microprocessors control all the robot's movements and actions. Robots can be taught by using a teaching mode. An operator moves the robot's hand through all of the desired motions manually with his own hand. When ... of early robots were pneumatically powered (air pressure) or hydraulically powered (fluid pressure). Flexible tubes carried the pressurized substances to the joints. Now, electric motors located at the joint give the robot greater precision and control, but slow down its movements. All robot manufacturers dream of joints with human- like tendons. Most robots are blind and are insensitive to their surroundings. Some have sensors triggered by light, pressure, or heat that ... robots can perform two kinds of welding operations - spot and arc welding. For spot welding, two metal sheets are welded by laying one sheet on top of the other and fusing them with an electric gun at several points.

112: 1984: The Party's Methods of Controlling People
... place where society was controlled by the government especially the lower class. Since the lower class didn't really have a life and weren't educated, the government knew it would be very easy to control them in three distinct but powerful ways. The Inner Party which is the government, controlled the people of Oceania by telescreens, doublethink, and propaganda. These three methods are so powerful in making the lower class ... the Inner Party, and Emmanuel Goldstein plays the role of keeping the citizens fearful that they might do or say, or even think, something harmful to the State and the Party. The telescreens attempt to control the intellect and emotions of its citizens. The telescreens prove the emotional loyalty to Big Brother, who alone has the power to create and to destroy anyone he wants. The people know that every move ... suddenly appeared all over London. It had no caption, and represented simply the monstrous figure of a Eurasian soldier, three of four meters high striding forward with expressionless Mongolian face and enormous boots, a submachine gun pointed from his hip. From whatever angle you looked at the poster, the muzzle of the gun, magnified by the foreshortening seemed to be pointed straight at you. The thing had been plastered on ...
113: Appalacian Regional Commission & Poverty In Appalachia
... that is unacceptable and even threatening to the dominant culture.”(Charon, p.216) In terms of Appalachia one can see this by the fact that political power rests in the hands of the elite that control the institutions of Appalachia, and controls the media, which portrays low status Appalachians in a negative light. The third effect of segregation is that “People in the dominant society through interaction develop a perspective - one ... Charon says “To the extent that people in the dominant society see their own culture as right and true, others who are different will be defined as threats.”(Ibid) He basically means that those in control may feel threatened by those who are perceived to be different from them, which may cause them to discriminate in an attempt to hold down those in the subculture. The actions the dominant group take ... into mainstream America with middle class values. The third part is that the colonized group is administered over by representatives of the dominant group, which can be seen by the fact that the local elite control the region, and get resources from the Federal government and administer the programs to the regions people.

114: Traffic Control: The Need For Change
Traffic Control: The Need For Change As the population of the United States dramatically increases and the number of vehicles on the nation's roads and highways skyrockets, new methods of traffic control and organization have become necessary, by utilizing new methods of transportation or by revising the current system. In the past 15 years, the number of vehicles on American roads has increased 41.9%, the number ... mainly by traffic accidents, traffic jams, and the environmental hazards created by the large number of vehicles on the road. Traffic accidents account for one of the major reasons that the current techniques of traffic control need revision. Traffic jams, along with broken cars and the lack of alternate routes, account for one half of the traffic congestion in the United States (Clark 387-404). Although the number of traffic ...

The intense poverty of ... that they mean something. They want to know that their life does not go unnoticed. They desire power over others lives. The poor, who are constantly controlled by the rich, yearn for the opportunity to control their world. In a typical society these urges would be satisfied by successful careers and families but in the torn and impoverished world of Maggie people gain power and control only through violence and the moral desecration of others. This thesis will be shown through the fighting amongst the children, the violence of the household, and the family s treatment of Maggie s death. ...

... Some of the first armored vehicles were just normal cars converted in a tank. In 1915, Wolseley developed a thirty-cwt. lorry chassis with armored sides and a revolving turret with a Vickers-maxim machine gun.

117: "The Gift of the Magi" and "The Necklace": Money and Its Control on People
"The Gift of the Magi" and "The Necklace": Money and Its Control on People Did you ever want something but couldn't afford it? The short stories, "The Gift of the Magi" and "The Necklace", deal with two women's struggles to make someone else happy and ... woman. Although she is beautiful, she only cares about money. In the story, she and her husband are invited to a party. She has her husband spend the 400 francs he has saved for a gun, on a dress she wants to wear to the ball. She also wants something beautiful to go with her dress, so she borrows a gorgeous necklace from a friend.

118: The Threat of Nuclear War
... is feared that under these circumstances it would be quite easy for a flock of geese to set off a nuclear war. Another fear is that a smaller nation, such as recent Korea, could gain control of, and utilize nuclear weapons, and trigger a war between the super powers. This type is called a catalytic nuclear war. There are two types of control over the operation of nuclear weapons: positive and negative. Plans implemented in order to prevent unauthorized use of the nuclear weapons - mechanical obstacles, electronic locks, prohibitive operational procedures - are designated as 'negative controls'. An analogy for negative control could be a father keeping his rifle unloaded, with the safety catch on and locked securely in a gun cabinet so there is little chance that the rifle will be fired by accident.

This revolution, or global spiritual emergency, will bring upheavals and overloads in our global consciousness that will impact the material Earth for better or worse, and may quickly get out of control.

Our present very tidy sense of reality and its boundaries is due to become much more fluid and permeable ... ante significantly. Has something changed? Could we really be facing biblical "End Times?" As I mentioned previously, I would have laughed-off such suggestions a few months ago.

The Aviary is believed to be comprised of: Bruce Maccabee (Seagull) - Well-known Naval photographic expert who verified the authenticity of the Gulf Breeze ... extremely eclectic background -- he received a PhD. in Thanatology (the study of death and near-death experiences) from Georgetown University under the tutelage of the celebrated Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. Apparently, Alexander is a "mind-control" junkie, having studied everything from Silva Mind Control, to a stint in a Buddhist monastery. When the National Research Council issued its findings that there was no evidence of paranormal phenomena, Alexander wrote a ...

... aim of government intervention is to create a just society that will reflect the people’s values. Governing bodies do this by establishing laws that enforce fairness or ‘equity’.

New units are exempt from controls for their first five years after which the controls are put into place. The controls put ... were allowed to take its course, then the price of housing would become unaffordable for most citizens.
